Dependent page layouts - data rules to show, hide, or make fields/sections req'd

Salesforce Platform, Customization, Large Enterprise Ideas, Application Framework, Large Enterprise

Under Consideration

There are times when it would be ideal to show different fields or sections on a page based on field data. For example, if a field for "software interest" is selected on a lead page, it would be nice if a section and/or fields related to capturing more information on "Software" is displayed. If the field is not selected, then this section and/or fields remain hidden. Allowing greater customization on the page level based on data rules would make for more manageable and targeted page layouts.

Kristie Garafola

Thank you all for your candid feedback and passion around this Idea. I understand that this is limiting and that a paid app is not the ideal solution.  As mentioned in my previous comment, the Product Team wants to address this Idea but the timeline is more than a few releases out. I have reached out to the product management team to get more background on why that is, so that you have a better Idea of what's happening in the meantime. 

For those of you who were at Dreamforce this year and able to see the True to the Core session, there are a large number of core features on the roadmap, which is great. I will post the session recording here when available so that you learn more about what's coming down the road. Last year we delivered nearly a half a million Idea points, including a few Top 20 Ideas; this year we plan and want to do even better.

In addition, if you're a member of the "True to the Core" chatter group ( you might have seen my update on changes coming to IdeaExchange to make your overall experience better.  This includes getting fresh updates on all top ideas, so that you have much better insight into what we're working on and what the timing of it is.

I appreciate your feedback. We do care and are committed to continuously improving our product to better serve your needs.  I'll post again once I have more info on the feature roadmap.
